Inserting Tomorrow's Date

Please Note: This article is written for users of the following Microsoft Excel versions: 2007 and 2010. If you are using an earlier version (Excel 2003 or earlier), this tip may not work for you. For a version of this tip written specifically for earlier versions of Excel, click here: Inserting Tomorrow's Date.

You may want to insert tomorrow's date into a cell in your worksheet. This is easily done by simply creating a formula that includes the function for today's date, as in the following:

=TODAY() + 1

This formula first determines today's date, and then adds 1 to it, resulting in tomorrow's date. You can then use Excel's formatting features to display the resulting date in any manner desired.

Besides displaying tomorrow's date, you can modify the formula to display a date at any time in the future. Simply change the formula so the desired number of days are being added to today's date. For instance, if you wanted to determine a date two weeks in the future, you could use the following:

=TODAY() + 14

The date will automatically get updated every day with 'x' no. of days in addition to the current date....
Not a good solution wherein you need to calculate monthly revenues based on the future dates.

Just remember that using that formula will produce a non-static date that will always update to "x" days in the future (or past, for "-x" days) of the current date.
